Pointing is my job and I am never fired.
I have a face and 3 arms but no body.
Telling you facts is my hobby.

What am I?

You're a clock!
Your hands go round and round, but, being a machine, you never tire. Your hands point to the numbers. You have a clock face and you have an hour, minute, and second hand. Because you're a clock, you don't have a body. Finally, clocks tell the time, a fact.

Edit: Since you're not that (as stated in the comments), could you be a...

Watch? That would even better fulfill the 'no body' requirement.
